IR Thermometer automatically corrects emissivity.

Press Release Summary:



Pyrofiber can measure temperature values at 1 ms data acquisition rate, allowing digital signals to be output as fast as 40 readings/sec. It provides target temperature and true target temperature automatically corrected for emissivity. Emissivity values can be output via analog or digital signal to a PC for analysis. Models are available for ranges of 500 to 5400°F, target sizes between 0.040 and 2.300 in. dia, and focal distance of 4 to 120 in.

Intelligent Automatic Emissivity Correcting IR Thermometer



Pyrometer Instrument Co Inc., Northvale, NJ - Introduces the Pyrofiber®, "lab model," non-contact, automatic emissivity correcting, IR thermometer specially designed for high-speed data collection and analysis. The Pyrofiber lab model microprocessor control can measure temperature values at an extremely fast 1 ms data acquisition rate, allowing digital signals to be output as fast as 40 readings per second.

The Pyrofiber lab model IR thermometer provides the user with complete temperature measurement information. Target temperature, "true target temperature"---(automatically corrected for emissivity) and emissivity values can be output via analog or digital signal to a PC or network main frame for analysis.

The Pyrofiber's lab software is extremely flexible allowing this unit to be incorporated into a wide variety of both lab and industrial applications where high-speed data collection and analysis is required.

The Pyrofiber lab model IR thermometer provides unmatched temperature measurement accuracy within ±5°F (±30C). Utilizing patented pulse laser technology the Pyrofiber measures infrared radiance while simultaneously measures and corrects for emissivity. (Emissivity is value that must be established to accurately determine infrared true temperature.) Several temperature models between 500°F- 5400°F (250°C - 3000°C) are available with target size ranges between .040"-2.300" (lmm-58mm) diameter at focal distance from 4"-120" (101mm-3048mm). Custom fiber optic sensor heads and probes are available to suit specific applications.

The Pyrofiber lab model IR thermometer can also incorporate an additional feature to measure reflective radiance from extraneous sources, such as furnace walls, eliminating additional error, assuring temperature accuracy.
